Hey SB--as Earl would say, we are kicking a Dead Horse at this point (although maybe not as no one can deliever a knock out blow!), but reading your comment forced me to actually go listen to it with headphones for the first time in years, and I just can't see the Jerry in it. When "talking" Jerry has a much higher voice, and Phil a much stronger, vaguely nasal tone, and this voices fits him perfectly, in my (not so) humble opinion...

I guess if no one can muster any real evidence we are stuck with just evaluating the sound, but I really can't see the Jerry given what the two of them sound like when making comments during banter and such from the early era.

It really sounds like Phil to me (or a real long shot of a non-band member), but not Jerry.

Not high enough...compare to the interviews with Jerry, such as at Playboy After Dark...his voice is reedy, almost verging on...well...analogies escape me. But it is much higher than this one. Phil, though he sang high harmonies, has a large adam's apple voice with real projection like this comment. Jerry "breaks" when he yells if you follow me, unless singing...

Oh well, we can agree to disagree I suppose.
